Neighborhood networks have always been at the heart of disaster relief, and we're seeing how our neighbors are continuing to step up right now as our communities confront multiple challenges. In this free webinar, we'll explore the unique role that artists play in responding to COVID-19. Hear from creative leaders in Detroit and New Orleans on how they used their skills to respond, and how they crowdfunded with ioby to help bring their projects to life. 

This webinar on crowdfunding for creative placemaking includes:

  • What makes creative placemaking special and how it differs from other public art projects;
  • Examples from three project leaders from across the country who started a creative placemaking project to respond to COVID-19;
  • See how artists organized their community, from afar, to build support and co-create;
  • Ideas for how to use creative placemaking to bring neighbors together;
  • Advice on how to crowdfund for creative placemaking projects;
